Things constantly changes including operating systems. In a recent blog from Samsung, they are officially closing the doors to Symbian. We cannot blame a career growth, if things are really over between the two companies then fine.

It has been a year ago since Samsung Vp quoted that they are ditching Symbian. Samsung abruptly made a back-up explanation – Multi-OS Strategy. All of Symbian developers’ dreams were shattered when they received an email sent by Samsung. Samsung will remove forums and all Symbian contents by December 31st. Now we can’t blame career growth. Samsung has been the biggest threat behind Nokia in the mobile indutry. Eventhough Samsung remains a member of the Symbian Foundation, just like Sony Ericsson, it will just be a name and nothing more.

The Nokia C7 Sneak Peak

Written on August 26, 2010 by Charles Bass

A little glimpse on Nokia's latest phone.

The Nokia C7 leak has gone to a high point. But it hasn’t undergone the mobile-review yet. There isn’t so much to review about this first prototype. It might be shorter than what we actually expect but it’s still the clearest we can give you.

C7 is the second Symbian phone from Nokia. C7 is also well balanced and more aggravating than of the N-series. But the class isn’t so good. Unlike the aluminum bodies of both N-series N80 and N97, the C7 is all plastic made.

The screen is all familiar. This was used in the X6 so you expect similarities. The charger is 2 mm jack via microUSB. The 8-megapixel is going strong in this model but the specs include: the screen, RAM (8 GB of internal storage).

The handset’s architecture has new features, with Symbian^3 provides increased operation time for all the mode. Look at operation time in different modes (in theory and in real life):

* Video playback – up to 7 hours (I managed 6.6 hours);
* Music playback – up to 50 hours (standard headphones, repeated tracks – 49 hours);
* Data transfer (Web TV) – up to 3 hours and 20 minutes (1 hour and 45 minutes, which may depend on the network quality);
* Video recording time – 3 hours and 40 minutes (3 hours and 10 minutes with maximum settings and manual screen brightness);

Now you can enjoy watching your favorite YouTube videos anywhere using your iPhone or Android. Thanks to HTML 5, watching online videos will no longer require Flash!

YouTube unveiled the completely revamped model of YouTube Mobile today as it is designed with Android and iOS devices. It uses HTML5 to play video without requiring Flash and much of the interface has been reworked for touchscreen devices. More features such as the like/unlike flags, playlists and suggested searches were also incorporated since its last update. The new version of YouTube mobile is potentially more advanced than the dedicated YouTube app for iPhone because it can use higher quality when not on Wi-Fi. HTML5 is also designed to work with 3G. However, support for other platforms such as RIM, Symbian, and others is still not practical because the said platform can still experience lagging when implementing HTML5.
